The Createspace version is here. Unfortunately the cover is too dark and a bit too red so I’ll have to update that, which isn’t such a bad thing as I can use it as justification for producing a blog post on how to make a Createspace cover.

Otherwise it looks pretty good and is a good exercise in practising PoD production for future projects. I was particularly worried that the font might be too small as it looked OK on screen but there’s no easy way to see what it will look like on paper without having it printed. But it seems a decent size for the story. The only real issue is whether switching fonts between the modern and past chapters was a good idea, I’ll have to think some more about that.

And it probably looks better than the attached images, which I had to take with the built-in flash on my camera, hence the reflections and the shadow on the side where the zoom lens blocks the light from the flash.
